Motorbike Man man a dash into the garden between showers and collected a variety of leaves, herbs and nuts from the garden, and we were set. We created trees of varying detail, from a few simple pasta pieces to a full display of leaves and nuts in the play dough.
We thought of autumn related things and made some of those - conkers, fireworks, pumpkins using the dough and some accessories.
They learnt to identify the tree by its leaves - I was impressed that Spiderboy could name quite a few of them!
We passed a good hour or so having fun with all the autumn colours and the kitchen had a lovely smell afterwards!
